Welcome to Generation Boomer. It is such a pleasure to bring this publication to our readers. We receive such great feedback and always welcome your comments and story idea’s.
The Baby Boomer population is definitely in a category of its own. The offspring of the nation’s Greatest Generation, of which we have so much to thank for assuring our freedom’s, the Boomers continue to define and influence the characteristics of our nation. The Boomers began turning 65 years of age in 2011 and continue to drive the growth of the aging population. By 2029, when all the Boomers will have reached 65 years and over, more than 20 percent of the total U.S. population will have crossed that milestone more than often considered senior retirement age.
By 2056, the Boomers age 65 are projected to become larger than the population less than 18 years of age. Whenever I talk about these statistics based on the census, those Boomers listening tell me they love it. They are excited to become part of this growing demographic that is aging better and longer than any generation before. Boomers today are enjoying this part of their lives, and are excited there are so many others to share this wonderful time too.
There are many visionaries like California author Sonia Arrison who write about the lifespan eventually reaching 150 years. “Humanity is on the crisp of an exciting longevity revolution,” writes Arrison in her latest book “100 Plus: How the Coming Age of Longevity Will Change Everything.” “The first person to live to 150 years has probably already been born,” Arrison says.
If this is indeed a concept that will one day come to fruition, how exciting for generations to come. Just as exciting as it was for some of the Super Centenarians to have witnessed the passing of the 19th century, one can only imagine what is on the horizon.
With this, I will leave you to enjoy Generation Boomer. It is a privilege to share this time with you.
